1953 Overprints

The 1952 overprints were confusing, but now it gets much worse. SG435 through SG491 are overprints of various issues with King Farouk's portrait obliterated. As with the 1952 o/ps, where I do not yet have the actual stamp I will show, where possible, the original in black and white.
